Public Radio International has this article on Chang Ho Kim, a mechanic that has fitted his old 1989 Honda CRX with tape and a translucent structure hanging from its back. Strange as the car looks, for "hypermilers" -- eco-enthusiasts who push the limits of fuel efficiency -- Kim's car is a thing of beauty. Reportedly, Kim recently distinguished himself among hypermilers by winning a fuel economy competition at the Adirondack Motor Enthusiast Club. His winning car clocked in at about 118 miles per gallon.
